Agreed. The 350's VO is going to be wasted on the backend, unless you
intend to make it a BE/FE.

As far as the PVR-500, you start running into, once you want to add
card #2 or #3 is IRQ's in PCI slots. Having both on one card will save
some headache down the road. Just know the 500's support in IVTV is a
little less mature than the 250 or the 350, being a newer product.
